Piece of the Pi

Life, man
Life
Man

Life is beautiful
A lot of people 
Don't see it
But it's true 
None-the-less

A lot of people
In the same sense
Don't see it 
Until it's too late
When they don't have
Much life left
And that's when they start
Living life

A lot of people just
Give up

Sometimes it's hard
To find the beauty
But it's there

It's all around you

Some things can really 
Bring a smile to your face
If you just look for them

Everyone's so wrapped up
In their worldly pleasures
And their every day
Rat Race Grind...

Which really makes no sense
If you think about it...

That they get lost
In a false meaning
Of what truly is beauty
In life

We live in a society that's
GO, GO, GO
BUY, BUY, BUY
MONEY, MONEY, MONEY
TIME, TIME, TIME

But if you would just
Take a minute
Just one fleeting moment
To slow down
Stop worrying about all the 
Things
You think are important
Take a minute to sit
With nature
And look around

You begin to realize that
Humans
As beautiful as they are
In their own right
Have become the scum 
Of the Earth

And we've only become this recently
We used to be one with it
Taking and giving
Balancing the scale
Now we just
TAKE, TAKE, TAKE
Because everybody wants 
A piece of the
CAKE, CAKE, CAKE

I could have said pie
But that has two meanings
There's the pie you eat
And there's the Pi 3.14
The one that spirals
Into itself
The one that makes this world
What it is
The perfect circle
The complete
The everything

That's the Pi I want a piece of
That's the Pie
I want a piece of

Life, man
Life
Man
